My psychiatrist says I have drug induced psychosis, I've been taking 40mg latuda for a month now and just upped the dose to 80mg(prescribed by my psych). I guess my question is, how long does it take to heal from drug induced psychosis, hopefully I won't be needing to take medication for the rest of my life... I'm only 18
I had asthma and received a drug called Prednisone which induced a psychosis. It lasted about 2 months. I had to go on a an anti psychotic to calm the symptoms. I was super manic, couldn't sleep, couldn't eat, angry, energetic, and couldn't sit still for a minute. This has arched into a depression which I am now suffering from 4 months later. I am on anti depressants now which are helping a lot. It's been quite a ride.
